Physical Education


Education in America has a responsibility as have other great social institutions, to help boys aid girls live effectively in a democratic society. Effective living implies the development of the individual's highest powers for his own dynamic functioning and for the good of the society in which he lives.

Physical education has the same responsibilities and the same objectives as has education in general. It is that area of education which, because it deals with body action, in movement, has as one of its major aims the development of more sensitive control of this instrument for more effective functioning. Science, particularly biology and psychology has demonstrated that the individual is at all time a unity, a unique living organism, which grows at a velocity and in a rhythm particularly its own. The individual learns and lives in relation to and interaction with his environment and his culture. The interaction is dynamic. Of all areas of education, physical education is significantly that area which deals constantly and continuously with the individual in his most dynamic learning, for he sees, thinks, feels, moves at once in situations of social and democratic import.
